• The only school with both MBB and WBB in the AP Top 10? Baylor.

    Rankings graphics: Baylor men's basketball No. 6 in the AP poll, women's basketball No. 10

    A month into the college basketball season, only one school in America has both its men’s and women’s teams ranked in the AP Top 10 — and that school calls Waco home.

    The Baylor men are off to a 9-0 start, with wins over Auburn, Florida, Oregon State and Seton Hall. The Baylor women are 7-0 to open the year, with victories over then-No. 4 Utah, SMU and Oregon.

    That success has Scott Drew’s squad ranked No. 6 in the country, and Nicki Collen’s crew at No. 10 nationally. On the men’s side, the Bears are part of a stacked Big 12 that has three schools in the top six: No. 2 Kansas, No. 3 Houston and No. 6 Baylor (plus future Big 12 partner Arizona at No. 1.). Similarly, the women’s side features three Big 12 teams in the top 15: No. 5 Texas, No. 10 Baylor and No. 13 Kansas State (not counting future Big 12 schools Colorado at No. 8 and Utah at No. 11).

    Both teams have big contests coming up after finals. The men face Michigan State at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Dec. 16 (1 p.m., FOX), followed by No. 22 Duke at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 20 (6 p.m., ESPN) before returning home to close out the Ferrell Center and open the Foster Pavilion. The women play one last regular season game at the Ferrell, then head to San Antonio and the Frost Bank Center to face Miami on Dec. 16 (4 p.m., ESPN+); after that, they’ll play two games in Florida before starting Big 12 play on Dec. 30 at Texas (1 p.m., FOX).

    Sic ’em, Baylor basketball!
